How can I begin to express my gratitude to the woman who saved my children and I? Heather is brilliant and a true fighter, but I think the best part is that she genuinely cares, most importantly, about the children involved. She will do everything to protect and defend children. She took a terrible divorce and custody situation that other attorneys told me was hopeless and she defended my little family until we got the best result for my children. Every time I celebrate a holiday and my babies are there with me, healthy and thriving I thank God for getting me in contact with Heather. She is not intimidated by bully ex-spouses or their aggressive attorneys. Even when my ex and his attorney were unethical, Heather said it was important to remain “above board.” This was difficult for me when my ex was trying to taint me in the eyes of the legal system, but ultimately, Heather was right. It’s also the little things, like when I was testifying at the custody hearing and was extremely nervous, Heather smiled and winked at me throughout my time on the stand to let me know I was doing well. That seemingly simple gesture allowed me to get through a very challenging process. If you want the best, most compassionate and brilliant legal mind, definitely call Heather. I will forever be grateful for her!

I hired this firm for a divorce matter. They went above and beyond my expectations! Dana Turk provided me with realistic advice as soon as I requested it. She was very thorough in explaining how the process would occur and was very considerate of my requests to the best that the law allows. My time that was spent consulting with Dana was very productive and efficient. My divorce was moved along as quickly as possible. I felt that the firm was very fair in their billing for legal services also. I would without a doubt recommend this firm to anyone going through a divorce.

Heather Scmidt is the absolute most amazing attorney I have ever hired. She has been my attorney since 2014 and she has gone above and beyond for the demands that I needed when it came to custody of my son. I would recommend her to everyone that I know. She will fight for the right of you and your family. She has gotten my child back for me twice and once was an emergency. She answers your calls and gets results immediately. If you are having trouble with custody, Heather is the one to call.

I hired Heather for my divorce and child custody issues. Heather is knowledgeable and fearless in the courtroom. Heather and her staff were professional and kind throughout my difficult times. I googled best family law attorney in Pittsburgh and her name came up. I am very happy for that.

Heather was the best choice I could have made in handling my divorce. She was always an email or call away when I needed advice or to alleviate different concerns throughout the process. She’s very knowledgeable in family law, and I’ve recommended her to others who have also hired her. I know in hiring her I got the most professional and compassionate service in the Pittsburgh area.

Heather was a great help in one of the most trying times of my life. She was with me through the whole process and was always willing to answer any question or concern, trust me I had a lot, that I had. You couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable or understanding attorney.

Heather supported me during difficult moments and helped me improve a challenging child custody case. I specifically appreciated her responsiveness, guidance and communication throughout the process. She even improved the communication with the opposing counsel. Thank you Heather.

I hired this firm to handle a custody situation with my son in which I moved to a different city than his father but was still in the same county. I initially had primary custody and did all of the work as the primary parent- none the less my ex filed for full custody. It was supposed to be a hearing for a school decision (my son was starting kindergarten) but soon turned into a full blown custody hearing where I was in danger of losing all parental rights and only getting 50% custody. This firm did nothing to help me keep primary custody. They consistently told me that I was wrong for moving to a better area for my son because “I had no valid reason to move” and that the court would never give me full custody because of that. During my custody battle I had various lawyers show up to my conciliation hearings unprepared and asking me simple questions such as, what my sons name is, while we were waiting to go inside. I felt that they were extremely unfocused and were unwilling to put in any effort into actually winning my case but had no problem charging an exorbitant amount of money for their half hearted services. The only reason I’m giving two stars is because they managed to file paperwork in a timely manner.

I hired Heather and I had a mountain of safety concerns regarding my then 2 year olds father. Had she done her job with any conscious whatsoever we never would have endured 2 years of sheer hell. She was directly responsible for my child’s father getting unsupervised visitation. Should never have happened.

Heather is very professional ,and has the ability to be assertive and aggressive at that the same time! She had a sincere interest in my divorce, I wasn't just a client she treated me as family. Her staff is always available and responded to me in a timely manner. I will continue to use Heather and will refer her to my friends and family.
